Disney Springs Has 3 New Restaurants in the Works

Disney Springs is adding to its menu of Italian eateries.

Patina Restaurant Group, owners of Morimoto Asia, announced that they will open Enzo’s Hideaway and Pizza Ponte, early next year.

The group is also opening the traditional Italian trattoria, Maria & Enzo’s in the same complex.

A statement released by the group describes Enzo’s Hideaway as a “Roman- aparativo-inspired” speakeasy that pays homage to Florida’s rum running history.

The prohibition theme extends to Maria and Enzo’s, connecting to the restaurant through the building’s rum-running tunnels. Expect foods like Bucatini alla Carbonara, a hollow spaghetti with creamy egg dish with pancetta sauce and Tonnarelli Cacio e Pepe, square-cut spaghetti with pecorino and black pepper.

Pizza Ponte will offer savory and sweet options from Sicilian-style pizza by the slice, Triangolo (stuffed pizza bread) and Bomboloni Italian doughnuts, to Sfoglia di Riso rice cream pastry and a classic Tiramisu.

The new restaurants also come with the group’s development of The Edison, a “Industrial Gothic” style bar and restaurant expected to open by the end of 2017.

Home sales hit 10-year high in January 2017

US home sales hit 10-year high in January 2017

Existing home sales up 3.3% (January)

U.S. home resales surged to a 10-year high in January as buyers shrugged off higher prices and mortgage rates, a sign of growing confidence in the economy.

The National Association of Realtors said on Wednesday existing home sales jumped 3.3 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.69 million units last month.

That was the highest level since February 2007.

December’s sales pace was revised up to 5.51 million units from the previously reported 5.49 million units. Economists had forecast sales rising 1.1 percent to a 5.54 million-unit pace in January. The NAR also revised sales data going back to 2014. The revisions were minor and had no impact on the characterization of the housing market.

Sales were up 3.8 percent from January 2016. A persistent shortage of properties available for sale, which is lifting house prices, remains an obstacle to a robust housing market.
